“I will never tire of saying thank you. I am grateful to God and to Cliníca Carolina for all you have done and are doing for my son. I lost my oldest son to epilepsy. I have been scared for the life of Jesser and I have felt desperate. Now I trust that Jesser will get the help he needs.”
Martin walked for more than an hour seeking medical care for a cyst on his shoulder. As he explained, at the beginning three years ago, he did not pay much attention to it, but now he knows it is growing and making it difficult to complete necessary tasks. Our doctor saw him in the remote clinic, but could not complete surgery there.
Thus, two days later as arranged, he came to the Limón clinic where our doctor and the team removed the cyst. Martin was so grateful to the team. He said, “You are angels sent by God to help the poorest. If I went to a hospital, they would turn me away. If I went to a private clinic, it would cost about 5000 lempiras ($208) and I do not have the money. Thank you very much. God Bless you.”
“I just wanted to drop a note to thank you for the awesome work you and the foundation are doing for our town. The services you provide are critical. The whole town is relieved whenever there is a team present. Thank you very much.”
“We were completely amazed at the quality of the work being done in this region of Honduras and the difference CHHF is making in the health and wellbeing of the people. It felt great to work as part of a team carrying on the tradition started by Dr. Gibson years ago. The team leaders were outstanding and we were able to focus on the work we came to do instead of the daily needs of transportation and food.”
“My CHHF experience makes me mindful of what I have … I continue to think of certain patients and experiences in the clinic, especially caring for a little girl we kept overnight in the emergency and a new mother whose baby we delivered. I was touched by all the children in the orphanage: their love, their hard work in school, and their graciousness. Being in the midst of these children was my great fortune.”
“The experience of Limon is one that gets under your skin and into your soul. It becomes a large part of who you are as a person and who you are as a Christian. From 2003 until 2015??? My wife and I have led medical teams to Limon. We are thankful that the individual skills of many have been put to use for all of God’s people. We took thousands of pounds of medicines and other donations on each trip, but when we returned, we truly came back with much more than we took down.”
“Our medical team in February 2012 took in over 922 patients, and gave out 2987 prescriptions in one week. We treated 31 cases of malaria at our clinics in Limon, Icoteas, and La Danta! An AMAZING group… It was fantastic working with you all!”
“Years ago I had the good fortune or divine appointment to go with a team of 12 folks from Alabama to the CHHF Clinic in Limón, Honduras. The experience was life changing for myself and all the other team members. The CHHF support staff in S.C. was, and still is, wonderful. The Hondurans we worked with have become friends that I see three times a year and literally talk or e-mail to weekly. Because of the leadership of CHHF Clinic, Honduras has become a part of my life. Don’t go if you don’t want to see what God has in mind for you. Take a chance, go for a week, and change your life.”
